    Fare isn't fair

    Life, Suwitcha Chaiyong, Published on 14/05/2019

    » Bangkok's buses are known to offer a Fast And Furious kind of ride. Years ago, the No.8 was voted worst in the city in the Transport Ministry's Facebook survey, due to the horrible experience. Despite a sudden change in driver and conductor behaviour after the survey was released, many public buses are still notorious for their impolite and inefficient services, as well as poor facilities, among many other things.

    A failing grade

    Life, Arusa Pisuthipan, Published on 20/08/2019

    » First it was rotten eggs in phalo soup served to schoolchildren in Prachin Buri province. Then it was criticism over a school lunch case in Nakhon Pathom where people took to social media, complaining both the quality and quantity of a lunch meal served to primary pupils.

    Bangkok dreams

    Life, Apipar Norapoompipat, Published on 17/04/2019

    » To any outsider visiting Bangkok for the first time, the first word they might use describe the city would probably be "chaos". From the polarity of old and modern, rich and poor, nature and synthetic, it's a lot for anyone to take in.

    A night of surprises, some splendid

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 28/05/2019

    » The odds weren't in Asia's favour, since there were only two films from the continent in competition. But South Korea did it, just like Japan had last year. Bong Joon-ho's Parasite won the Palme d'Or at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival, making it the second year in a row that an Asian film has won world cinema's most coveted prize, after last year's victory of Hirokazu Kore-eda's Shoplifters.

    Bangkok to hear Bartók's Viola Concerto

    Life, Harry Rolnick, Published on 13/03/2018

    » So many jokes have been written about the viola that it really should be pitied. Without a look of its own (the viola resembles an overweight violin), without its own sound quality (it shares three-quarter of the violin notes, three-quarter of the cello notes), stuck behind the violins in the orchestra, the poor viola is hardly singular. In fact, when Hector Berlioz wrote solo viola into the Harold In Italy symphony, Paganini refused to play it. And the conductor Sir Thomas Beecham, noting how the viola shared the looks and music of other stringed instruments, called the instrument "the hermaphrodite of the orchestra".

    » It was Sunday. The traffic was bad. We could've stayed indoors and binged on TV series to escape the heat. But where did we go? Across the city to a concert, of course. Ed Sheeran was back, now for his Divide Tour 2019 at Rajamangala Stadium, and we couldn't have been more excited.

    Feeling the XX Factor

    Life, Apipar Norapoompipat, Published on 01/02/2018

    » When concert organiser VIJI Corp announced that British indie band The xx would be performing at Thunderdome Muang Thong Thani, I was concerned. The hall boasts a notoriously horrid sound system, potentially able to completely wreck the band's minimalistic and hypnotic sound.

    Lucky enough

    B Magazine, Tatat Bunnag, Published on 17/03/2019

    » Any celebrity would want their face to be seen anywhere, be it press, radio, TV or social media. But sometimes it can be a double-edged sword that could do both harm and good.

    » Scott Kildall's map of Bangkok has bundles of fine electric wires criss-crossing, tangled around small water flasks.
